This week, OLRG hit the ground running with some old raids on Horde so I was really looking forward to going with them. Many of the usual suspects were there like Matty, Kamalia, Helke, and Taik but there were also quite a few I didn’t recognise so if you happened to be there, let me know in the comments below.
I had asked Matty the night before if there was anything on the agenda and she replied there were a few suggestions but to add my own if I had anything in mind. Needless to say, I suggested ULD but with Daylight Savings ending early this morning, I was a little unsure of the starting time so I set my alarm for 9am as a reminder. Little did I know, I would still wake up at 8am so I logged into the laptop to see if I could confirm the raid time. I was happy to see Matty on through the Battle.net launcher and asked her to confirm the start time. Phew, one hour to go.
An hour later, I logged in to find them already in ULD so I joined them on the way to Ignis. I was especially excited to try ULD25 for another chance at the Soulscribe or Starshard Edge for my Stargazer outfit. Kamalia even told me she’d be taking her Pali so she wouldn’t be rolling against me. Luckily for her she won hers on my run for completing Val’anyr.
When we headed to Council, achievements were mentioned as they decided which one they would go for. As the last council member died, Kam told me my dagger had dropped. OMG! I was excited to see it again but had a mini ‘What the’ moment when I noticed I couldn’t roll need; I admit I didn’t notice the stats since I’m so used to the caster versions above.
Enter Matty who asked everyone to pass so I could have it. <3 Little did we realise Algalon would drop another just as we joked a few moments before. My shoulder token also dropped (two in fact) which was the last piece I need to compete my set but they went to two other lucky individuals. Grats to whoever won those.
As you can see, I even managed to walk out with a couple of new achievements during Thorim and Yogg. Next came BWD with a premature pull and subsequent wipe (where I kind of lost my bearings after being teleported to the spirit healer). It was so long since I’d done the place, it was like waking up after a nap.
Things went pretty smoothly after that. It was especially great to knock Achieve-a-tron off the list since I was so close to completing it when it was still current content.
Thanks for the laughs guys and girls. See you all next time.
These days, I don’t head into Kara much after collecting all the pets but since I’m travelling around the continent every day, I decided to clear all but the optional bosses to see if I had any mount and pet luck.
Apart from the wrong opera and nothing from The Curator, I headed up to the Opera Event for my usual quick and easy solo. Now it usually goes without a hitch but for some reason I was stuck in the second piece I tried to move. After several attempts to eject myself from the pawn and log myself out of the game, it actually looked like the game was frozen.
Luckily, the game dropped out about 10secs later so I logged back in to find the match still going. At first I thought I had an automatic win because the cache was sitting there but then I noticed the pieces were moving. By hopping into the King and moving him from his fiery position, I ended up only hitting King Laine twice before he keeled over and died. They must have nerfed the event again because it seems even faster now with literally minimal effort.
At least I didn’t leave empty handed.
